Junaid Khan402215.50163100
4.6 to N Dickwella, Dickwella marches down the track and holes out to extra cover. Junaid has his revenge. He lets out an animated roar. Dickwella slinks down but Junaid holds his own and bowls it full on middle. Dickwella gets too close to the pitch and carves it to Zaman. 30/2
Usman Shinwari6.303815.84214020
1.2 to WU Tharanga, Usman strikes with his second ball on ODI debut. He storms through the defences of Tharanga and pegs the middle stump back. Bowled through the gate. This is an excellent delivery: full and skids back into the left hander. The speedgun reads 137ks but it looked quicker than that, beating Tharanga, who dared to play across the line. He does not make contact. Usman hits. 2/1
Imad Wasim701321.85300010
10.5 to S Samarawickrama, Sadeera bags a duck on ODI debut. This was the flat inducker from Imad - skids back into the right hander from around the wicket. Sadeera plays back to a fuller one and misses it completely; he was late to bring his bat down. Timbaaaaah. 59/4
40.1 to HDRL Thirimanne, Imad returns and has Thirimanne scooping a catch to Babar at extra cover. Pushed through and sliding across off from around the wicket, Thirimanne simply chips it to the fielder. Soft end to a gritty innings. 164/9
Mohammad Hafeez9.312903.05311000
Hasan Ali8.403734.26273000
20.5 to TAM Siriwardana, oh great catch! Usman Shinwari lunges forward and to his left to get his hands quickly under this flat one dipping at him fast. It's a short ball angled into the mid-riff, he swivels and pulls in the air. That didn't go too far above head height and dipped fast, but Shinwari was sharp at fine leg. 91/5
35.2 to A Dananjaya, Hasan has Dananjaya nicking behind and unleashes his trademark celebration - pumping his fists and stretching his arms out. What a sight. Words can't do justice to it. This was on a good length and hung up wide outside off. Hint of away movement. Dananjaya bites and edges it to Sarfraz behind the stumps. 142/8
43.4 to PLS Gamage, Hasan, the new world no. 1, wraps up SL for 173 with another three-wicket haul. This is the slower offcutter, Gamage does not spot the change-up. He has a big heave at it, he does so early, and has his stumps rattled. 173/10
Shadab Khan802923.62262010
24.1 to S Prasanna, ... and he strikes with his first ball to leave Sri Lanka six down for 99. Googly, breaks back in on middle, Prasanna does not read the wrong'un and winds up for an ambitious slog sweep only to miss it. 99/6
24.2 to NLTC Perera, he's gone first ball! Shadab on a hat-trick. Good length at off stump, googly. He looks to flick but hasn't reached the pitch of the ball. Closes the face too early inevitably and the edge loops to first slip's left. 99/7

Lahiru Gamage502715.40193010
1.4 to Imam-ul-Haq, oh this has got to be out. Yes. Plumb in front. Full ball, right up at off stump. It's not a convincing shot - foot goes half a yard across the stumps and the head is falling over into the off side. He's off balance and the bat is angled as it comes down. Dead in front. Plays outside the line too. 12/1
Akila Dananjaya812913.62311110
8.5 to Fakhar Zaman, legspinner this time and it was spinning into the corridor. He might have had a good swing at this if he had stayed in the crease. But he chooses to go down. Nowhere near the pitch of this flat ball. Swings wildly and beaten by a long way. 37/2
Seekkuge Prasanna1004414.40291100
13.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, holes out to deep midwicket. Ordinary shot. Takes on the slog sweep at this length ball on middle stump, slices it straight to the fielder who was down early and had to adjust as it swerved to his left. Took it low. 58/3
